Joe Surname

Some of my inlaws have the surname Joe. I understand that this is a Chinese name. My inlaws are not Chinese. They live in Texas, originating in Alabama. I could find no slave owner with this surname in 1850. I found John Joe Slave owner in Alabama in 1860.
George Joe's first child was born in Anderson county Texas in 1856. Could this Slave owner in Alabama be the owner of the Joes in Texas.
I have been looking at Alabama sites, but have found nothing so far.
The family knows nothing about the name. My inlaw is a decendant of Daniel Joe of Palestine, Anderson Tx. Thanks for any help. Eva
